Civil Appointment signed: "Calvin Coolidge" as President, "Jno G. Sargent" as Attorney General, 19¼x14½. Washington, D.C., 1925 December 15. Appointment of Ray St. Laurent as US Attorney for the Western District of Oklahoma. After losing an election for School Committee in 1905, CALVIN COOLIDGE (1872-1933, born in Plymouth, Vermont) never lost another one. He was Mayor of Northampton, Massachusetts (1910-1911), State Senator (1912-1915), Lieutenant Governor (1916-1918), Governor (1919-1920), vice president (1921-1923) and president (1923-1929). He earned a national following during the Boston Police Strike of 1919, when as Governor he declared, "There is no right to strike against the public safety by anyone, anywhere, any time." "Silent Cal," as he was called for his economy of speech, succeeded to the Presidency upon the death of Warren Harding and won election to his own full term in 1924. Despite his taciturn manner, Coolidge gave more press conferences than any President before or since, and was the first to deliver a political speech on radio. How one rates the Coolidge Presidency depends largely on whether one shares his belief in reduced government spending and regulation. JOHN G. SARGENT (1860-1939), a graduate of Tufts College, served as State Attorney General of Vermont from 1900-1902 and 1908-1912. He was appointed U.S. Attorney General on March 18, 1925 and served in the Coolidge Cabinet until March 5, 1929, succeeding Harlan F. Stone who had been appointed to the Supreme Court. After leaving Washington, he served and chairman of the Vermont Commission on Uniform State Laws and was a trustee of the Black River Academy, Slightly soiled (pinhead head size brown spotting).
